Footnote has worked with the US National Archives to put millions of Civil War records online and now, for the month of June you can view the collection free of charge.
Included in the collection are thousands of photos, maps, service records, and pension files, as well as some personal accounts and writings making it the largest collection of it’s kind.
When you log on you will go straight to the Civil War Website Pages and upon browsing the links you can view a copy of Abraham Lincoln and family on the 1860 Census.
While I’m not sure this will help me with my Italian family research it is still worth looking through and may aid you in yours so take advantage of the free offer and look through the site. You never know what you may find!
